The Converting Loans are repayable on or before 24 August 2012 but if approved by shareholders, by the immediate issue of a “Menzies Securities” Convertible Note with a face value equal to the total Converting Loan drawn. If approved the Convertible Note will be repayable in full or in part by the way of ECT shares, at the Conversion Price, within 2 working days after a conversion notice has been submitted to the Company. The Convertible Notes have a 2-year maturity date.

ECT has the option to repay the Convertible Loans with cash.
